A common misconception about Touring Plans Crowd Levels is that they are an indicator of the number of people in each park. However, they are an indicator of average queue waits at the rides in that park during 11am – 5pm - the peak ride times.
A CL 1 can feel like a CL 4 in terms of park capacity, but the queues may be moving quickly. Conversely, you can be in a CL 9 park that feels like a CL 5 because the streets aren’t packed. However, all the queues are super long.
With all that being said, IMHO, it’s going to be packed. People are going to travel. The parks are very busy right now & it’s not any holiday. I’d keep an eye on this Saturday, Halloween, to get a good idea of what it may look like.
Also, while I LOVE Touring Plans and these forums. I have been very impressed lately with another site / blogger who has been going every day since the reopening. Check out:
I still make a TP every trip & don’t rely on just one Diseny travel site. That being said though, a touring plan has been proven to save you up to four hours of time not standing in queues. With a touring plan you’ll be ahead of 90% of the people just wandering aimlessly asking, “What do you want to do next?” and then walking into a queue that is 90 minutes long. Later in the day that same queue may be only 15 minutes, but they won’t know that. However, you will because TP will have given you that data.
